Identify a shrub

Asked June 7, 2019, 4:07 PM EDT

I would like to know that name of this shrub if possible. Two of them just started growing in my yard/ The smaller one was in a bad location so I pulled it up. The larger one is in an OK place but I would like to know what it is and if it is invasive before I decide whether to keep it in my yard. I have attached pictures of the plant, its leaves and its stem. Thank you for your help. Ann Leipold

This is euonymus, probably the foreign invasive one, Euonymus alatus. As it matures, the older woody stems/trunks are not green but brown with ridges that stick out.
It needs to be removed.
